Hot Ticket Item: Stars Come Out For Disney Hall

The three opening galas in late October for Los Angeles’ new Disney Hall are the hot ticket of the season. “The first night is virtually sold out. Sure, the performing arts community is feeling pressure to attend the Disney galas — it can’t be easy to send regrets. ‘I wouldn’t want to be sitting home those nights. I’d feel so left out!’ But mostly the events are selling themselves, say organizers, who hope to net $7 million.”
